The Best of Jerry Pournelle edited by John F. Carr
Paperback – Baen – Oct 2020 – 759 pages
For half a century, Jerry Pournelle’s name has been synonymous with hard-hitting, idea-driven, wonder-inducing science fiction. His Falkenberg’s Legion stories and Janissaries series helped define the military SF genre, his CoDominium universe is an SF standard for worldbuilding and future history, and his novels with frequent collaborator Larry Niven are some of the most important works science fiction has ever seen – and the best-selling and most read.
Now, for the first time, Pournelle’s best short work is collected together in a single volume. Here are more than a dozen short stories, each with a new introduction by editor and long-time Pournelle assistant John F. Carr. The book also includes a cornucopia of Pournelle’s rampantly imaginative and compelling essays, as well as great remembrances by Pournelle collaborators Larry Niven, S.M. Stirling, and more!
